It’s a work in progress but everything should work now


Bodexpress—the weird year—

Well, the jockey is embarrassed, Bodexpress clearly has an energetic takeoff out of the gate, and did his best to do his job for the day... The Derby was weird. The Preakness was weird. The weird goes on. I don't watch horse racing. I will not watch a race until I am...

Jane and I Had Our 5th Wedding Anniversary Yesterday

And our garden pretty much looks as it did that day, when we used it for our location. The orange/fire colored azalea is twice the size it was, we have glorious blooms out of 4 tree peonies, the red hawthorn is festooning its branches in pink like a Maxfield Parrish...

The morning air is pleasantly cool and smells of flowers…

And the pond is crystal clear. We now have the garden under control. The house---not so much. There are still stacks of boxes in the kitchen as high as my chin. But it's useable. One of these days Jane and I are going to declare an Organization Day and start trying to...

We're getting a proper door on the food pantry (as opposed to the equipment pantry) and we have fairly well finished the finished half of the basement's makeover----the library has shelves, and the craftroom has, well, a lot of boxes it's holding for the OTHER side of...

The New Tank Lights are beautiful but…

A bug in the software is preventing my getting them to turn off and on at the right hour. Right now they come on in midafternoon and run through 3 am. But I have a call in to the manufacturer. and aquarium equipment is one of those things where you do get right to...

My apologies……it’s been a zoo.

Not a bad zoo, but multiple snowfalls, physical therapy which leaves me quite bushed, taxes, and the big marine tank is having a snit, having just gone through blackouts and 2 years of house remodel---my equipment just finally bit the big one. The circulation pump...
